Svn checksum error

svn checksum error

If a (silently) corrupted node receives a new incoming update, it causes the "checksum mismatch". With IJ , I think the corruption bug is fixed, but. I ran the "svnadmin verify" all over the place (which is enormously time consuming) svnadmin dump | svnadmin load Everything I can think of. Never got. Svn error: e checksum mismatch for.. OK file is back. Check to see if it's solved. Of course, how do I know how to solve this problem.

Svn checksum error - apologise

Fix: "svnadmin: Checksum mismatch while reading representation"

Fix the Subversion/svn error: "svnadmin: Checksum mismatch while reading representation".

Verify the integrity of the repository.

The checksum mismatch error here means the next version (87) failed as it wasn't successfully verified. Some data stored in the repository changed or got corrupted. In my case, a rogue script did a find and replace across all system files. This affected the checksum of the file when the repository was being checked out and thus the mismatch error.

To fix this, look for the expected checksum string (45e4fa4ec0e6cccf53b7) in a file in the repository.

Edit file where the checksum was found (db/revs/0/87).

To verify your changes worked, verify the specific revision where the error occurred by using -r with the svnadmin verify command. Remember that this is the last number displayed as "Verified revision XX" plus 1 more.

Before:

After:

Repeat these commands for all the checksum mismatch errors. Now the svn checkout command should work.

Note this method changes affects the integrity of the repository. If you know the exact(!) changes that were made to the file or files in the repository, you can change them back and the checksum will succeed.

I'm trying to dump and load a few dozen svn repositories and one of them fails with this message on the load:

svnadmin: E SHA1 of reps ' ceecefea4cba1bd1c99ba5 8c58eef60c3efaadccdca k/_19c' and '-1 0 ceecefea4cba1bd1c99ba5 8c58eef60c3efaadccdca k/_19c' matches (8c58eef60c3efaadccdca) but contents differ
svnadmin: E Filesystem is corrupt
svnadmin: E Checksum mismatch while reading representation:
   expected:  ceecefea4cba1bd1c99ba5
     actual:  80ec0f5b9a12cf6a99cb2acf6

It fails while trying to load rev I've searched the archives and tried everything that I understood. I tried the -M0 option (no change).  I tried doing the operation locally on the server. I tried using svnrdump. I tried using svnsync (it gets svnsync: E Error while replaying commit).  An "svnadmin verify" does not find any problem on either the original repository on the server, or the partial repository (after the failed load).

Both server and client are running svn (the server was originally running and was recently upgraded).  Server is running on CentOS7, client is running on CentOS I even tried it on a Fedora27 installation (also running svn ) with the same results.

Is this a corruption in my original repository that is only noticed when trying to load after dump?  Is this a bug it the loader?  Is there any more information I can provide to help debug this?

That is probably issue

sprers.eu

It's a bug in the SHA1 collision detection code and will be fixed
in There is no corruption in your repository.

I tried upgrading to subversion v, and with that version of svnadmin, the load worked without any trouble.

SVN - Checksum mismatch while updating

I had a similar error and fixed as follows:

(My 'fix' is based on an assumption which may or may not be correct as I don't know that much about how subversion works internally, but it definitely worked for me)

I am assuming that .svn\text-base\sprers.eu-base is expected to match the latest commit.

When I checked the file I was having the error on , the base file did NOT match the latest commit in the repository.

I copied the text from the latest commit and saved that in the .svn folder, replacing the incorrect file (made a backup copy in case my assumptions were wrong). (file was marked read only, I cleared that flag, overwrote and set it back to read only)

I was then able to commit successfully.

Question

I'm using subclipse in Flex Builder 3, and recently received this error when trying to commit:

I worked around it by:

  1. Committing all the other changed files, omitting the troublesome one.
  2. Copying the contents of the trouble file to a TextMate window
  3. Deleting my project in FlexBuilder/Eclipse
  4. Checking my project out fresh from SVN
  5. Copying the text of the trouble file back in from the TextMate Window
  6. Committing the changes.

It worked, but I can't help but think there's a better way. What's actaully happening to cause the svn:checksum error, and what's the best fix.

Maybe more important -- is this a symptom of a greater problem?

Solution

The file in the .svn directory that keeps track of what you have checked out, when, what revision, and from where, has gotten corrupted somehow, for that particular file.

This is no more dangerous or critical than the normal odd file problem, and can be because of various problems, like a subversion program dying mid-change, power-disruption, etc.

Unless it happens more I wouldn't make much out of it.

It can be fixed by doing what you did, make a copy of your work-files, check out a fresh copy, and add the modified files back in.

Note that this might cause problems if you have a busy project where you would normally have to merge in changes.

For instance, you and a collegue both check out a fresh copy, and start working on the same file. At some point, your collegue checks in his modifications. When you attempt to do the same, you get the checksum problem you have. If you now make copies of your changed files, do a fresh checkout, then subversion will lose track of how your changes should be merged back in.

If you didn't get the problem in this case, when you got around to checkin in your modifications, you would need to update your working copy first, and possibly handle a conflict with your file.

However, if you do a fresh checkout, complete with your collegues changes, it now looks like you removed his changes and substituted with your own. No conflicts, and no indications from subversion that something is amiss.

OTHER TIPS

There's also a simpler cause for this than just bugs, or disk corruption etc. I think it the most likely cause for this to happen is when someone writes a recursive text replacement on the working copy, without excluding .svn files.
This means the pristine copies of the files (basically the BASE version of the files, that's stored inside the .svn administrative area) get modified, and that invalidates the MD5 sum.

@Andrew Hedges: that also explains why your solution fixes this.

SVN keeps pristine copies of all the files you checkout buried in the .svn directories. This is called the text-base. This allows for speedy diffs and reverts. During various operations, SVN will do checksums on these text-base files to catch file corruption issues.

In general, an SVN checksum mismatch means a file that shouldn't have been altered was changed somehow. What does that mean?

  1. Disk corruption (bad HDD or IDE cable)
  2. Bad RAM
  3. Bad network link
  4. Some kind of background process altered a file behind your back (malware)

All of these are bad.

HOWEVER, I think your problem is different. Look at the error message. Note that it expected some MD5 hashes, but instead got back 'null'. If this were a simple file corruption issue, I would expect that you would have two different MD5 hashes for the expected/got. The fact that you have a 'null' implies that something else is wrong.

I have two theories:

  1. Bug in SVN.
  2. Something had an exclusive lock on the file, and the MD5 couldn't happen.

In the case of #1, try upgrading to the latest SVN version. Maybe also post this on the svn-devel mailing list (sprers.eu), so the developers can see it.

In the case of #2, check to see if anything has the file locked. You can download a copy of Process Explorer to check. Note that you probably want to see who has a lock on the text-base file, not the actual file you were trying to commit.

I occasionally get similar things, usually with files that nobody has been near in weeks. Generally, if you know you haven't been working in the directory in question, you can just delete the directory with the problem and run

to recreate it.

If you have live changes in the directory then as lassevk and you yourself suggested, a more careful approach is required.

Generally speaking I would say it's a good idea not to leave edited files uncommitted, and keep the working copy tidy - don't add a whole bunch of extra files into the working copy that you aren't going to use. Commit regularly, and then if the working copy goes tits up, you can just delete the whole thing and start over without worrying about what you might or might not be losing, and without the pain of trying to figure out what files to save.

Just today, I managed to recover from this error by checking out a copy of the corrupted directory to /tmp and replacing the files in .svn/text-base with the just co'ed ones. I wrote up the procedure in some detail here on my blog. I'd be interested to hear from more experienced SVN users what are the advantages and disadvantages of each approach.

try: svn up --force file.c

This worked for me without having to do anything extra

I've observed a lot of solutions from patching .svn/entries file to fresh checkout.

It can be a new way (thank to my collegue):

Another, possibly even scarier, workaround for checksum conflicts I found is as follows:

CAVEAT: Make sure your local copy is the best known version, AND that anyone else on your project knows what you're doing! (in case this wasn't obvious already).

if you know your local copy of the file is "the good one" you can directly delete the file from the SVN server and then force commit your local copy.

syntax for direct deletion:

good luck!

J

As an alternative to checking out a fresh copy (which I also had to do after trying all other options) and than merging all your changes which you previously saved backed into it, the following approach worked the same way, but saved me a considerable amount of time, and possibly some errors:

  1. Check out a fresh working copy
  2. Copy .svn folder from you fresh copy into your corrupt copy
  3. Voila

Of course, you should backup your original corrupt working copy just in case. In my case, I was free to remove it after I was done, as everything went fine.

This will happens when the .svn folder corrupted. Solution: Remove the entire folder of the file contains and checkout the folder again.

Had this issue, our dev VM's are all *nix our workstations win some fool(s) created files of the same name (different case) on the *nix box all of a sudden checkouts on Win32 blows up because win doesn't know which of the 2 files of the same name to MD5 against, checkouts on *nix were fine leaving us to scratch our heads for a bit

I was able to update the repo on the win box by copying the ".svn" folders over from a *nix box with a good working copy. have yet to see if the repo can be cleaned to the point where we can do a full checkout again

One other easy way

  1. Update your project to get latest version
  2. checkout the same version in an other folder
  3. replace .svn folder from the new checkout to the working copy ( i've replaced .svn-base files )
  1. Check out only folder with problematic file from repository to some other location.
  2. Make sure is identical to one checked out.
  3. Make sure problematic file section (all lines of the section) in is identical to one checked out.

You won't believe this, but I have actually fixed my error by removing the stance from the offending sprers.eu file I was hoping to check in. It contained the URL of the subversion repository it is checked in (this is what the Maven setting is for!), but somehow it generated a faulty checksum for the file while checking in.

I literally tried all aforementioned methods of fixing this, but to no avail. Did I encounter a very rare situation in where the checksum generator is not robust enough?

I also stumbled upon this issue and was trying to look for quick solutions, tried some of the solution given in this thread. This is how I resolved this issue in my development environment (to me it was minimal change):

1- Locally deleted directory in which the file got corrupted (WEB-INF):

2- Copied and pasted directory (WEB-INF) from a fresh checkout

3- Did svn up, now Eclipse/TortoiseSVN started showing conflict in this directory

4- Marked conflict as Resolved

This worked, I was able to update, commit earlier corrupted sprers.eu

In my case the sum was different. All I've done was:

1) Make Check Out to separate folder

2) Replace by file from this folder in .svn directory with my project problem-file which was said in svn-client error message

3) sprers.eu!

Although this is an old issue, I thought I would give my 2 cents as well, since Ive just wrestled with the problem for more than an hour.

The solutions above either didn't work for me, or seemed over-complicated.

My solution was simply to remove all svn folders from the project.

After this, I did simple checkout of the project again. Thus leaving all my un-committed files intact, but still got a rebuild of all the svn files.

I had this problem on ubuntu and solve it by follow steps:

  1. $ cd /var/www/myProject
  2. $ svn upgrade
  3. $ svn update

after these steps i could commit file without error.

  1. Go to the folder causing problem
  2. Execute command
  3. This folder will empty and revert the empty folder
  4. Sync with the svn and update.

This work for me.

here's how i fixed the issue - v simple, but as per jsh above, need to be sure your copy is the best one.

simply

  1. make a copy all problem files, in the same folder.
  2. delete the old ones with svn rm
  3. commit.
  4. then rename the copies back to the original file names.
  5. commit again.

suspect this probably kills all sorts of revision history on that file, so it's a pretty ugly way to go about it

You know Coda, the text editor I sometimes rave about? Like many text editors, it has this handy feature for doing global searches and replaces. But, unlike any other I’ve ever seen, it will happily, and without prompting for an administrator password, let you replace text in files for which you don’t have permission to write. You know, like Subversion repo copies. D’oh!

Don’t get me wrong. I love Coda. I love it enough to choose to spend most of every day with it front-and-center on my screen. But, for the life of me, I can’t imagine why it allows me to replace, without prompting me for an administrator password, text in a file with the following permissions:

For the uninitiated, the distinct lack of w’s in that line is supposed to mean that the file is read-only.

Enough, already! Show me how to fix it!

Whatever the reason, Coda changed the files, which just happened to be the Subversion (SVN) reference versions of some of my repository files. The next time I tried to commit changes to my repository, I got an error message something like the following:

The above is actually taken straight from an article called “subversion checksum mismatch - easy workaround.” I’m glad I found the article because it helped me fix the problem. Contrary to the title of the blog post, however, I didn’t find Chris’s instructions all that clear, so I thought I’d take a shot at explaining it in a way that is maybe a little easier to follow.

A side trip down Background Lane

Feel free to skip this section if you are familiar with [how SVN works](sprers.eu(software)) or are just in a hurry to fix your issue and get on with life!_

SVN is software that helps you track revisions to files. As such, it is very important for SVN to know when a file changes. SVN stores information about every change made to files under its control locally in plain text files inside hidden directories. Trust me, you don’t want to edit those files directly.

Before committing (saving) a file, SVN compares the latest revision of the file in the repository with the corresponding, locally saved, latest revision. Actually, it doesn’t compare the files directly. Instead, it compares the checksums. A checksum is a shortened hash that represents the contents of a file. If the checksum for a file changes, you know it has been altered.

Once you change a file, it’s really hard to get it back to its original state for the purposes of this check. Directly putting back the text that was changed didn’t work for me. I don’t know exactly how checksums are calculated, but it could be that they’re based on the contents of the file plus some meta-data (like the last modified date) or else I just missed some of the changes.

In any case, I was having a bugger of a time with this, until I discovered the above-linked article. Then, I was, to quote The Proclaimers, on my way from misery to happiness. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.

Enough, already! Show me how to fix it!

The process we will follow to restore the repo to a state where we can commit entails the following steps:

  1. Check out the latest revision of the corrupted directory into a temporary directory
  2. Delete the munged SVN revision files
  3. Copy the correct SVN revision files into the working directory

As you can see, it’s not difficult. You just have to know where to look for the correct files to swap out.

A benefit of my way over other procedures I’ve seen described is that I didn’t have to do anything special to get back to a state where I could commit the latest changes I had made. After doing the above, SVN told me I had changes to commit. I committed them, and I was done.

Ominous disclaimer: what I am describing worked for me, for text files. It may not work for you. It should work for binary files, but I haven’t personally tried it. Following this procedure, you may lose your life’s work, putting you on an irreversible path to destitution and despair. You have been warned.

OK, now that you’re too scared out of your wits to try them, know that these steps have face validity and worked in my case. If that’s enough assurance for you, let’s get this road on the show.

The following are the commands I used to restore my repo. The paths and filenames have been changed to protect the innocent. Also, I am describing the process for Mac OS X, so if you’re on a different operating system, make the proper adjustments.

  1. Open sprers.eu or your command line interface of choice
  2. Change to a directory that is not under version control. works nicely:
  3. Checkout the latest revision of the corrupted directory:
  4. Change into the directory that holds the SVN revision files:
  5. Open a second terminal window and change into the directory with the corrupted revision files: At this point, if you were to list the contents of the directories in both windows, they should be identical and consist of a list something like the following:
  6. In the second window (the one with your working copy), delete the corrupted revision files. If you know which one(s) they are, just delete them. Otherwise, you can delete everything in this directory: (Note for the paranoid: you could backup this directory before performing this step if you want. I figured why bother since it’s corrupted already and I had a backup in the form of the newly checked out version in )
  7. Back in the first window, copy the contents of the directory into your working directory:

That’s it. You should now be able to commit to your heart’s content.

  2. Change to a directory that is not under version control. works nicely:
  3. Checkout the latest revision of the corrupted directory:
  4. Change into the directory that holds the SVN revision files:
  5. Open a second terminal window and change into the directory with the corrupted revision files: At this point, if you were to list the contents of the directories in both windows, they should be identical and consist of a list something like the following:
  6. In the second window (the one with your working copy), delete the corrupted revision files. If you know which one(s) they are, just delete them. Otherwise, svn checksum error, you can delete everything in this directory: (Note for the paranoid: you could backup this directory before performing this step if you want. I figured why bother since it’s corrupted already and I had a backup in the form of the newly checked out version in )
  7. Back in the first window, copy the contents of the directory into your working directory:

That’s it. You svn checksum error now be able to commit to your heart’s content.

Question

I'm using subclipse in Flex Builder 3, and recently received this error when trying to commit:

I worked around it by:

  1. Committing all the other changed files, omitting the troublesome one.
  2. Copying the contents of the trouble file to a TextMate window
  3. Deleting my project in FlexBuilder/Eclipse
  4. Checking my project out fresh from SVN
  5. Copying the text of the trouble file back in from the TextMate Window
  6. Committing the changes.

It worked, svn checksum error, but I can't help but think there's a better way. What's actaully happening to cause the svn:checksum error, and what's the best fix.

Maybe more important -- is this a symptom of a greater problem?

Solution

The file svn checksum error the .svn directory that keeps track of what you have checked out, svn checksum error, when, what revision, and from where, has gotten corrupted somehow, for that particular file.

This is no more dangerous or critical than the normal odd siocsifflags unknown error 132 arch problem, and can be because of various problems, like request failed error reading the headers, referer subversion program dying mid-change, power-disruption, etc.

Unless it happens more I wouldn't make much out svn checksum error it.

It can be fixed by doing what you did, make a copy of your work-files, check out a fresh copy, and add the modified files back in.

Note that this might cause problems if you have a busy project where you would normally have to merge in changes.

For instance, you and a collegue both check out a fresh copy, and start working on the same file. At some point, svn checksum error, your collegue checks in his modifications. When you attempt to do the same, svn checksum error, you get the checksum problem you have. If you now make copies of your changed files, do a fresh checkout, svn checksum error, then subversion will lose track of how your changes should be merged back in.

If you didn't get the problem in this case, when you got around to checkin in your modifications, you would need to update your working copy first, and possibly handle a conflict with your file.

However, if you do a fresh checkout, complete with your collegues changes, it now looks like you removed his changes and substituted with your own. No conflicts, and no indications from subversion that something is amiss.

OTHER TIPS

There's also a simpler cause for this than just bugs, or disk corruption etc. I think it the most likely cause for this to happen is when someone writes a recursive text replacement on the working copy, without excluding .svn files.
This means the pristine copies of the files (basically the BASE version of the files, that's stored inside the .svn administrative area) get modified, and that invalidates the MD5 sum.

@Andrew Hedges: that also explains why your solution fixes this.

SVN keeps pristine copies of all the files you checkout buried in the .svn directories. This is called the text-base. This allows for speedy diffs and reverts. During various operations, SVN will do checksums on these text-base files to catch file corruption issues.

In general, an SVN checksum mismatch means a file that svn checksum error have been altered was changed somehow. What does that mean?

  1. Disk corruption (bad HDD or IDE cable)
  2. Bad RAM
  3. Bad network link
  4. Some kind of background process altered a file behind your back (malware)

All of these are bad.

HOWEVER, I think your problem is different. Look at the error message. Note that it expected some MD5 hashes, but instead got back 'null'. If this were a simple file corruption issue, I would expect that you would have two different MD5 hashes for the expected/got, svn checksum error. The fact that you have a 'null' implies that something else is wrong.

I have two theories:

  1. Bug in SVN.
  2. Something had an exclusive lock on the file, and the MD5 couldn't happen.

In the case of #1, try upgrading to the latest SVN version. Maybe also post this on the svn-devel mailing list (sprers.eu), so the developers can see it.

In the case of #2, check to see if anything has the file locked. You can download a copy of Process Explorer to check. Note that you probably want to see who has a lock on the text-base file, not the actual file you were trying to commit.

I occasionally get similar things, usually with files that nobody has been near in weeks. Generally, if you know you haven't been working in the directory in question, you can just delete the directory with the problem and run

to svn checksum error it.

If you have live changes in the directory then as lassevk and you yourself suggested, a more careful approach is required.

Generally speaking I would say it's a good idea not to svn checksum error edited files uncommitted, and keep the working copy tidy - don't add a whole bunch of extra files into the working copy that you aren't going to use. Commit regularly, and then if the working copy goes tits up, you can just delete the whole thing and start over without worrying about what you might or might not be losing, svn checksum error, and without the pain of trying to figure out what files to save.

Just today, I managed to recover from this error by checking out a copy of the corrupted directory to /tmp and replacing the files in .svn/text-base with the just co'ed ones. I wrote up the procedure in some detail here on my blog. I'd be interested to hear from more experienced SVN users what are the advantages svn checksum error disadvantages of each approach.

try: svn up --force file.c

This worked for me without having to do anything extra

I've observed a lot of solutions from patching .svn/entries file to fresh checkout.

It can be a new way (thank to my collegue):

Another, possibly even scarier, workaround for checksum conflicts I found is as follows:

CAVEAT: Make sure your local copy is the best known version, AND that anyone else on your project knows what you're doing! (in case this wasn't obvious already).

if you know your local copy of the file is "the good svn checksum error you can directly delete the file from the SVN server and then force commit your local copy.

syntax for direct deletion:

good luck!

J

As an alternative to checking out a fresh copy (which I also had to do after trying all other options) and than merging all your changes which you previously saved backed into it, the following approach worked the same way, but saved me a considerable amount of time, and possibly some errors:

  1. Check out a fresh working copy
  2. Copy .svn folder from you fresh copy into your corrupt copy
  3. Voila

Of course, you should backup your original corrupt working copy just in case. In my case, I was free to remove it after I was done, as everything went fine.

This will happens when the .svn folder corrupted. Solution: Remove the entire folder of the file contains and checkout the folder again.

Had this issue, our dev VM's are all *nix our workstations win some fool(s) created files of the same name (different case) on the *nix box all of a sudden checkouts on Win32 blows up because win doesn't svn checksum error which of the 2 files of the same name to MD5 against, checkouts on *nix were php redirect 404 error leaving us to scratch our heads for a bit

I was able to update the repo on the win box by copying the svn checksum error folders over from a *nix box with a good working copy. have yet to see if the repo can be cleaned to the point where we can do a full checkout again

One other easy way

  1. Update your project to get latest version
  2. checkout the same version in an other folder
  3. replace .svn folder from the new checkout to the working copy ( i've replaced .svn-base files )
  1. Check out only folder with problematic file from repository to some other location.
  2. Make sure is identical to one checked out.
  3. Make sure problematic file section (all lines squirrelmail database error could not lookup salt the section) in is identical to one checked out.

You won't believe this, but I have actually fixed my error by removing the stance from the offending sprers.eu file I was hoping to check in, svn checksum error. It contained the URL of the subversion repository it is checked in (this is what the Maven setting is for!), but somehow it generated a faulty checksum for the file while checking in.

I literally tried all aforementioned methods of fixing this, but to no avail. Did I encounter a very rare situation in where the checksum generator is not robust enough?

I also stumbled upon this issue and was trying to look for quick solutions, tried some of the solution given in this thread. This is how I resolved this issue in my development environment (to me it was minimal change):

1- Locally deleted directory in which the file got corrupted (WEB-INF):

2- Copied and pasted directory (WEB-INF) from a fresh checkout

3- Did svn up, now Eclipse/TortoiseSVN started showing conflict in this directory

4- Marked conflict as Resolved

This worked, I was able to update, svn checksum error, commit earlier corrupted sprers.eu

In my case the sum was different. All I've done was:

1) Make Check Out to separate folder

2) Replace by file from this folder in .svn directory with my project problem-file which was said in svn-client error message

3) sprers.eu!

Although this is an old issue, I thought I would give my 2 cents as well, since Ive just wrestled with the problem for more than an hour.

The solutions above either didn't work for me, or seemed over-complicated.

My solution was simply to remove all svn folders from the project.

After this, I did simple checkout of the project again. Thus leaving all my un-committed files intact, but still got a rebuild of all the svn files.

I had this problem on ubuntu and solve it by follow steps:

  1. $ cd /var/www/myProject
  2. $ svn upgrade
  3. $ svn update

after these steps i could commit file without error.

  1. Go to the folder causing problem
  2. Execute command
  3. This folder will empty and revert the empty folder
  4. Sync with the svn and update.

This work for me.

here's how i fixed the issue - v simple, but as per jsh above, need to be sure your copy is the best one.

simply

  1. make a copy all problem files, in the same folder.
  2. delete the old ones with svn rm
  3. commit, svn checksum error.
  4. then rename the copies back to the original file names.
  5. commit again.

suspect this probably kills all sorts of revision history on that file, so it's a pretty ugly way to go about it

testgenerator unmatched data error volume limit exceeded "svnadmin: Checksum mismatch while reading representation"

Fix the Subversion/svn error: "svnadmin: Checksum mismatch while reading representation".

Verify the integrity of the repository.

The checksum mismatch error here means the next version (87) failed as it wasn't successfully verified. Some data stored in the repository changed or got corrupted. In my case, a rogue script did a find and replace across all system files. This affected the checksum of the file when the repository was being checked out and thus the mismatch error.

To fix this, look for the expected checksum string (45e4fa4ec0e6cccf53b7) in a file svn checksum error the repository.

Edit file where the checksum was found (db/revs/0/87).

To verify your changes worked, verify the specific revision where the error occurred by using -r with the svnadmin verify command. Remember that this is the last number displayed as "Verified revision XX" plus 1 more.

Before:

After:

Repeat these commands for all the checksum mismatch errors. Now the svn checkout command should work.

Note this method changes affects the integrity of the repository. If you know the exact(!) changes that were made to the file or files in the repository, you can change them back and the checksum will succeed.

Hello,

could you please advise which exact tool you are using, svn checksum error, SubGit command-line tool or SVN Mirror add-on for Bitbucket server? If that’s SubGit, the binary can be found here:

sprers.eu

If that’s about SVN Mirror add-on, then the best way is to upgrade or re-install it from Atlassian Marketplace.

I’m svn checksum error that just replacing the file may not be the best way to resolve the issue, rebuilding the repository is the most right way, especially for a mirrored repository. If can be done either on the Support tab in the add-on UI:


it allows setting a revision number to rebuild the repository from to not to rebuild the svn checksum error repository. The best practice is to take a revision a couple of revisions earlier than the problematic one.
It also possible do the same with SubGit, too:

where REV_NO is the revision number to rebuild the repository from and the REPO stands for the repository path.

Hope this will help.

To access a specific version of the file identified by the sprers.eu URL you need to use a corresponding revision the operative.

SubGit is to be installed on your Git server. It detects the settings of your remote SVN repository downloads SVN revisions and converts them to Git commits.
